Head Chef – Viva Vegas Diner – Our Brand New American Themed Diner Brand, Central Blackpool – 27k + Discretionary Bonus Scheme

This is a unique chance to assist in the development and creation of a brand new diner concept in a flagship location in the UKs entertainment capital.

We are looking for someone who ‘lives and breathes’ American food and culture, and will assist us in the development of a range of menus and food products available across the entire day and night in a high footfall location.

An eye for detail, a passion for presentation and an understanding of standards which go beyond customer expectation will be key as we seek to stamp the seal of approval of the local and visiting audience to Blackpool – standing head and shoulders above anything else offered locally and the ‘Burger Joint’ of choice when it comes to visiting the town.

The right candidate will have the supportive structure of an experienced management and operations team, top of the range kitchen design and equipment, a high budget ‘feature venue’ build, as well as the freedom and responsibility to assist in shaping a food product range which will firmly establish our concept in the local market place, as well as paving the way for future expansion into other locations.


Viva Blackpool is a venue which has experienced high growth over consecutive trading years, with a great reputation for quality customer experiences as well as a reputation for developing their team as well as their range of products.

We’re a business who put a lot of passion into everything we do and need a strong head chef to share their values and vision within this new concept. We are currently looking to grow year on year with further expansion planned around the existing venue, and growth across the UK. Our company offers excellent training, development and fantastic career progression for the right head chef and will invest heavily in the chosen candidate.

Viva Blackpool is exciting, diverse and there will be opportunities to assist in other food related activities across the business too, supporting our banqueting and restaurant operation which operates throughout the year.


We’re looking for a Head Chef with passion and a love of the amazing ‘comfort food’ of the the USA – a person with personality, ambition and an understanding of what our target audience is looking for.

As Head Chef you will have experience in high end branded or quality restaurant operations renowned for delivering great service in a fun inviting environment.

We’re really looking for a Head Chef with a real drive, ambition and a team orientated approach – who may also be open to becoming a ‘name’ or a brand by developing an identifiable reputation our customers will associate with an incredible food experience.


Salary of up to £27k depending on experience plus excellent benefits scheme and bonus structure
